Bike Shop Employee Seriously Injured Attempting to Stop Thieves [Update: Thieves Arrested]
@dirtyrig: In New Zealand, we have good (not great) free universal healthcare. And our highest tax rate is 33% for individuals and 28% for companies. The higher tax rates in Scandinavian countries don’t just pay for health care. So saying you’d rather just pay for health insurance is a little bit silly. They have better infrastructure and cheaper (often free) teritary education among other things.

Pinkbike Awards: Suspension Product of the Year Winner
@taquitos: I have done some modeling and characterisation of Ohlin's vehicle dampers, I found that the LSC adjustments follow an exponential profile, whereas HSC is parabolic. It's related to the flow characteristics and iI imagine Fox dampers are similar. It's likely why it feels as though most of the clicks change nothing.

2018 Pinkbike Awards: Mountain Bike of the Year Winner
Is it really that interesting? The award's not called "Bike most likely to appeal to a wide audience of the year".

Tech From The Andorra DH World Cup 2018
@SoDiezl350: I totally agree that you wouldn't actually analyze this system as a simple cantilever. But looking at the geometry and the direction of the applied load, I think it would be foolish to study the system without the inclusion of bending. To me it looks to be the dominant effect, however this is based on my intuition only.

Tech From The Andorra DH World Cup 2018
@SoDiezl350: Sorry to be the engineer in the room, but that's not really correct. The reason I say this is that deflection is not linearly proportional to the length of the deflecting member. Using the example of a simple cantilever, if the length is doubled but all other parameters remain the same then the deflection will increase by eight times. The force required to produce a given torque changes linearly with distance. So even if the force is halved by doubling the mounting length, the deflection will still increase by four times. To further complicate things, just because less force could be used to slow the wheel at the same rate doesn't mean it will be. The brake caliper is still capable of applying the same clamping force regardless of the mounting position. So even though the rider could achieve the same angular deceleration as with a smaller mount by pulling the brake more gently, they probably won't because that would defeat the purpose of increasing the mount size in the first place.

Ask Pinkbike: A Slippery Wheel, A Used Bike that's Too Good to Be True and the Elusive Alloy DH 29er
@BiNARYBiKE: "What you want to find is the OCD rich guy who is obsessive about having the best bikes and keeping them in the best shape, and at the same time doesn't ride very hard or often" So basically buy a second hand yeti.

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Suspension Product of the Year Nominees
@MikerJ: Metric shocks are literally just slightly different lengths such that their stroke and eye to eye is a nice number in mm. eg 200 mm eye to eye and 50 mm stroke instead of 8" eye to eye and 2" stroke

Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
@RedRedRe: Stop with this elitest bs. You're not special because you can ride a mountain bike. If people with no skills and fitness see e bikes as a pathway to a healthier or more enjoyable lifestyle so be it. Don't bash them because your ego hurts when they ride past you.
